Kwangde Shar, Northeast Spur, Attempt. It was reported that a British team led by Phil Wicken had hoped to make an ascent of Kwangde Nup (6035m), but unstable weather forced them to change their objective to the northeast spur of Kwangde Shar. They reported very fine rock climbing around gendarmes on the crest of their route, but bad weather stopped their attempt. (High Mountain Sports 179)
